Video Posted on Updated on

Are you ready to step up your social media game?

free social media planner printable

If you’re serious, you need a game plan. And luckily, I’ve got your back!

If you plan your social media for 20 minutes a day, you will see your business SOAR over time. But it takes consistency and dedication.

In this video, I’m going to show you how to use this free social media printable I created for you. So you can work strategically and SMARTER. You commit to 20 minutes a day, and I will teach you how to do it. Deal?

You can download your free social media planner and printable below, but first let me teach you how to USE it. If you don’t know how to use it, you won’t be able to do it in 20 minutes a day.

Watch this video on HOW to use the printable effectively and then join Directly Social on Facebook to get your FREE PRINTABLE!


Just 20 minutes a day focused on a specific task with social media will go a LONG WAY!

Monday: Facebook Business Page:

On Monday, do a Facebook Live video on a product you have, make a post on booking or recruiting, post a company video on the customer specials, anything you want. But make it a great post. Because we’re going to use it AGAIN later in the week.

Tuesday: Instagram:

Take a product video (60 seconds or less for Instagram), post a product graphic, or plan out your daily posts for the week.

Wednesday: YouTube:

Take that Facebook Live video you did on your business page on Monday….and download it, then upload to YouTube! Make a video of your hostess packets, show a couple 3 minute or less product videos, make a video answering FAQs about joining your team, anything you want. Lately, I’ve found it more productive to simply do those videos on my FB business page and then download them, then upload to YouTube to have them in both places!

Thursday: Twitter

Take the posts you’ve done all week and make one tweet a day and schedule those in CInchshare. SO EASY to take what you’ve already done on Instagram, YouTube, and your Facebook business page and make tweets out of those posts/videos. Don’t forget your Pinterest pins too! Those can all be tweets!

Friday: Pinterest:

Take your Youtube video and make it a pin. Take your Instagram product graphic or quotes and link them as Pinterest pins! SO EASY. Pin your customer specials, hostess packets, anything you want. Go around your house and snap some pictures of how you use your product and pin them to coordinating boards.

Don’t know what to work on?

And if you’re sitting there during one of your 20 minutes sessions and you don’t know what to do, RESEARCH. I research every single day. Google Pinterest ideas, or Instagram ideas, FIND something new to do!

Hope this helps everyone to be more consistent in your social media! Have a great day!

What’s the BEST Business Card for Your Direct Sales Business?

Video Posted on

I am STOKED about this marketing tool for my business! I love it and I want to make sure everyone knows about it.

So let me ask you, what does everyone woman carry in her purse-besides a pen? CHAPSTICK!! I have found a website that is super affordable to buy lip balms that are blank on the outside. And then you can also buy the labels for them and print your own labels with your business information!

That is TEN TIMES better than a business card! Cause no sane woman would ever throw away a lip balm, right?!

I bought pens and used them for years. But I like to be different. And this is definitely right up my alley!!

So check out my own below


Now WHAT are you going to do with these?

1. You can give them to cashiers

2. You can put them in the tubes at the bank drive through

3. You can leave them for servers

4. You can hand to ANYONE you’re having a conversation with about your business

5. Give them to your friends and family so THEY always have your business information on them! They may have your regular information…but would they know your BUSINESS information? I think I’ll give my mom some extras to hand out FOR ME!

6. Use these at your parties for prizes and giveaways. Everyone loves lip balm! And that is SO cheap for a giveaway! Heck, it’s so cheap that you could give EVERYONE at your home party at checkout!

7. These would be great for vendor events

8. Great for Nurses and Teachers week!! Pass out mini grab bags. Or any type of swag bags you were asked to donate.

9. What about Halloween?! You could make little bags for the moms!

10. How about Christmas gifts to all your hostesses for the year? Keep your information in front of them!!

11. These would be great to pass out at your kids ball games. “Hey anybody need some chapstick? I just got these in and I love them”. Oh, yeah…sly as a fox…LOL!!!!

The possibilities are truly endless.

The most important thing in your Direct Sales business is to STAND OUT in the sea of consultants in your area. It doesn’t matter how many consultants are in your area. If they’re not marketing their business in a FUN way, or not even marketing at all, people will choose to shop with YOU. And that’s a fact Jack 😉 I am constantly looking for ways to stand out. To reach new people. To make conversations easier and more fun. To get my information into more people’s hands in an effective way. So what are YOU doing?

Here is the website to order your own blank lip balms:

Round lip balm:

Regular “stick” lip balm:

Now I’m not talented enough to make those cute little labels. So Kim, from Night Owl Custom Design on Facebook, made them for me!

You can click the link below to order your own labels if you order these. They’re super affordable and totally worth it!

Here is the link for the round labels:!/Labels-Personalized-Lip-Balm-Round-labels/p/52409193

and here is the link for the tall lip balm labels –!/Labels-Personalized-Lip-Balm-Tall-Rectangular-labels/p/52409194/category=12983062

Happy Marketing ladies!!

Here is one of the most successful things I do in my business.

Google surveys. They’re incredible for engagement and sucking information out of people.

WHY do they work?

Well, my theory is this. We, as women and human beings…cannot…NOT click on a  link. It’s like a dare. And if we don’t, we might be missing out on something. And then once they click on the link, well…there’s more information as you scroll…so you have to keep scrolling…and before you know it…dammit! You’ve filled out the entire survey! HAHA! That is what I picture in my head. Don’t stay in there too long, it’s a jungle!

So check out this video on how I used a Google survey to:

  1. get some more parties on the books
  2. create a giveaway for them to fill it out
  3. drop some HOTM
  4. and…drop some recruiting seeds while I’m at it. 

Watch for my next post, cause I’m going to walk you through “how to make that AWESOME Google Survey Melissa just made;)”

PRE-POST: So Here is an example of my Introduction:

Hello everybody! My name is Melissa Fietsam, and I am an Independent Senior Executive Director with Thirty-One. I have been with the company for over 8 years. I absolutely love my job and want to introduce myself and Thirty-One. I have 5 crazy children and I’m married to my high school sweetheart. I am a retired Registered Nurse and I used to work in the Emergency Room and teach LPNs on the side. I was able to supplement my income with Thirty-One, and now I’m a full-time mom and business owner!

This is a picture from my FREE trip from Thirty-One, we went to an all inclusive resort at Hard Rock Punta Cana!

I love Thirty-One because it gives women the freedom to pursue their dreams. It’s so much more than just a bag:) For those of you who don’t know…Thirty-One was founded on 31 Proverbs and is all centered around celebrating, encouraging, and rewarding women. And I can’t wait to tell you more about it!

**Get the Hostess Goody Bag on business supplies for $25 and that is ALL you will need. You can easily say $100 in prizes to give away. Make this a regular part of your business expenses each month. This is WORTH EVERY PENNY.

I order this goody bag on the 10th of every month for the following month’s prizes.

**FOCUS on what you want out of the group. My focus is always hostess of the month club. but decide what you want the most and FOCUS on that!

**Have the person holding the camera read through comments DURING the live event and relay them to you out loud so you can still interact with everyone. They love teasing and talking to my daughter Samantha now, because they know she’s the one behind the camera narrating:)


Have a great event ladies!! ANd do this EVERY month. Your business will thank you.

Pie Throwing Contest for Thirty-One Consultants

Video Posted on Updated on

Okay, here’s something FUN to help you earn your Ready, Set, Sell…a PIE THROWING CONTEST!

The fun part is this: When we hit $600 in orders, I’m going to let one of my customers smash a pie in my face via Facebook LIVE. I will literally drive to their house with a chair and a pie. And I think I have a few customers who will be fighting over this honor. LOL!

Check out this video and then see the details below:

So this is just like a “Turkey Trot” with a social media TWIST.

You get 6 people to collect $100 in orders and you submit one big $600 party and split the hostess rewards between those 6 Hosts.

**Please note: you will want to CHANGE this graphic in some way so we don’t all get thrown in Facebook jail. Add a border, or your name to the bottom, or something to make it different before you upload it to your customer page!

thirty-one teams incentive for sales

Here’s the breakdown of what they earn if you hit $600 in sales:

1. Any item half off
2. $25 Gift Certificate
3. One hostess exclusive item
4. One hostess exclusive item
5. Back Pack or Take Two Tote
6. $31 Gift Certificate
7. $31 Gift Certificate
8. Any item half off

What we’re actually asking them to do is ALL social media. I created this PDF of our July bundles. And I’m asking my customers to simply sell TWO bundles (that will get them to $100 most likely): JULY BUNDLES PDF

Then I uploaded it to a site called ISSUU so I can send it as a TEXT.


Here’s a sample post in your customer group:


HEY HEY! It’s a Pie Throwing Contest! All you have to do:

~Is share this LINK with a few of your friends

~Sell 2 bundles

thirty-one teams incentive for sales


Here is the “launch video” I posted in my customer page about this pie throwing contest. Just so you can hear my wording for it:


This really is one of the easiest things you can do. And one of the easiest things your CUSTOMERS can do.


**Let them know the first person to submit orders gets to PICK their hostess benefit. This encourages them to collect and get them in.

**Let everyone know that if they sell 4 bundles, they get all hostess benefits 1-3, don’t ASSUME they know that.

**Want to get fancy? PRINT the bundles and send it to them.

**Day 1-text them the link…Day 2-FB message them the link…Day 3-email it to them…with tips on how to message a few people, text a few people, etc. HELP THEM. Don’t just sit back and hope it turns out great.

**Hey…don’t forget YOU can sell them too. Text your favorite buying customers, customers with kids heading back to school…and SELL SOME YOURSELF!!

** I will start a texting blitz myself. By messaging all past hostesses first. And asking them if they want to give this a shot.

**I will probably post DAY 2 and let everyone know that anyone who turns in $100 in orders will get one of my very first FALL catalogs in the mail.


Hope this helps someone earn their RSS!!
